    A fund established with the National Geographic Society Education Foundation to encourage and improve the teaching of geography in Mississippi and to increase and disseminate geographic knowledge more broadly in the state.
    About The Mississippi Geography Education Fund
    After discussions with the Phil Hardin Foundation in 1989, the National Geographic Education Foundation agreed to establish an endowed fund to encourage and improve the teaching of geography in Mississippi and to increase and disseminate geographic knowledge more broadly in the state. The Mississippi Geography Education Fund is the first state endowment established in the Society's Education Foundation. To initiate the Fund, the National Geographic Society announced its intention to provide up to $500,000 in matching funds to create an endowment. The Phil Hardin Foundation granted an initial $250,000 to the Mississippi Geography Education Fund. This grant was matched by the Society. It is the hope of the Hardin Foundation and the Society that the Fund will eventually exceed $1,000,000 through additional contributions. To this aim, the National Geographic Society is prepared to match an additional $250,000 in gifts to the Fund. From its inception in 1992 through 2000, the

Memorabilia Shop Physical Geography: Mississippi is bounded by Tennessee on the north, Alabama on the east, the Gulf of Mexico and Louisiana on the south, and on the west, across the Mississippi River, the states of Louisiana and Arkansas. South of the North Central Hills, the Jackson Prairies, a belt of fertile farmland, run northwest to southeast from Yahoo County into Wayne County. All of southern Mississippi except for a strip along the gulf, is covered with the Long Leaf Pine Hills (a.k.a. Piney Woods) south of the Jackson Prairies, and is the state's chief timber-producing area. Along the southern edge of the panhandle lie the Coastal Meadows. The lowest part of the state, along the estuary known as the Mississippi Sound, lies at sea level. The western part of the state is drained by the Mississippi River and three of its tributaries -? the Yazoo, Big Black, and Homochitto rivers. The extreme northeastern corner lies in the basin of the Tennessee River. The rest of the state drains southward into the Gulf of Mexico, mainly through the Pearl, Pascagoula, and Tombigbee rivers.

    The Mississippi drains 1,245,000 square miles (41% of America). Geographically it is the forth longest river in the world after Africa's Nile, the Amazon of South America, and the Congo in central Africa. Its watershed ranks third among the world's rivers; after that of the Amazon and the Congo. Its discharge into the gulf is again third after the same two rivers, with a volume of 651,000 cubic feet per second at its mouth. Flowing through The Great Plains the Mississippi changes little in elevation, only 1475 ft. from its headwaters in a small Minnesota lake called Itasca. It meanders through pine forests and marsh in northern Minnesota forming the shape of a question mark. The river spills over St. Anthony falls and heads south to flow between towering bluffs in Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois. When it drops into Missouri it is met by the Illinois, the Ohio and the Missouri rivers. The Missouri doubles the Mississippi and the Ohio doubles it again. With its flow quadrupled the Mighty Mississippi moves out into the delta. Here the Mississippi finally has the room to meander through cotton fields. There are no hills on the delta until the river changes course and runs up against the bluffs at Vicksburg. At the town of St.Francisville it leaves the bluffs again, this time for good, as it goes off through swamps and bayous to unload its silt at the end.

You may read the standards here on the Web, in your print guide, or in Geography for Life . We encourage you to read Geography for Life in its entirety as you move through the workshops. It contains further background on the National Standards, numerous examples and rich illustrations aiding interpretation, valuable tools for strengthening and developing lessons, and additional insight on geography's significance to our daily lives. The National Geography Standards highlighted in this workshop include Standards 4, 7, 9, and 15. As you read the standards, be thinking about how they might apply in lessons you have taught.

    The Regions of Mississippi
    Mississippi is divided into four geographic regions. These four regions are further divided into several sub-regions that are defined by culture that has been directly influenced by the geology of the land. The four main regions and their sub-regions are:
    • The Gulf Coast
    • The Coastal Terrace
    • The Barrier Islands
    • The Southern Wooded Prairies
    • The Pine Belt
    • The Central Prairie
    • The Delta
    • The Mississippi-Yazoo River Basin
    • The Loess Bluffs
    • The Northern Highlands
    • The Red Clay Hills
    • The Flatwoods
    • The Pontotoc Ridge
    • The Black Prairie
    • The Northeastern Hills
    These four regions each have their own history and pattern of settlement. Because of this, they each have their own cultural identities; some say they even have their own linguistic dialect. Even religious affiliation is different among these regions. And yet, the people of these regions fiercely identify as Mississippians.
    The Gulf Coast
    The Coastal Terrace
    The Barrier Islands
    The Barrier Islands lie some 10 to 20 miles offshore. These islands consist of sand dunes that barely break the waves of the sea. They are generally only a half mile to a mile wide and several miles long. Marshy lagoons support diverse and delicate wildlife in the interior of these islands. The islands serve an important geological function. They protect the mainland from the ravages of sea weather, sparing the mainland the brunt of the frequent hurricanes that make landfall here. On the inland side of one of these islands – Ship Island – the LeMoyne brothers set anchor and rowed ashore to found the first settlement of the Lousiana colony. The islands are generally uninhabitated except for tourists, sun-worshippers, and sportsmen who arrive by boat for daylong excursions.

Governor Ronnie Musgrove, Lieutenant Governor Amy Tuck, Speaker of the House Tim Ford, President Pro Tempore of the Mississippi State Senate Travis Little, and Speaker Pro Tempore of the Mississippi House of Representatives Robert Clark will also speak. Mezzo-soprano Lester Senter Wilson will sing the National Anthem, and the Jackson State University Brass Quintet will provide music before and after the ceremony. The unveiling of Jason Bouldin's full-length portrait of Winter will be held in the building lobby after the ribbon-cutting, and a public reception and tours of the new building will follow. Construction of the Winter Building officially began with the March 21, 2000, groundbreaking. In September 2003, the Administration, Archives and Library, and Local Government Records divisions began the move into the new building from the Charlotte Capers Building, which had housed MDAH since 1971. The new library will open to the public for the first time on Monday, October 27.
